Review for Mandela Marketplace, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first met Dana at the Socap conference. It's a huge conference with a lot of fairly high falutin people. Dana's talk about her work transforming neighborhoods by galvanizing community members was by far the strongest presentation I saw.

I have worked in the nonprofit sector for 10 years and I knew from the time I met Dana and learned about her work with Mandela that I wanted to be involved. One year later I joined the board.

Mandela puts local resources to the ground tackling economic develompent, food systems and local business ownership. I truly believe there should be a Mandela Marketplace seeding and growing businesses across the country.

Hopefully one day there will be.
